Dry your clothes indoors. While hanging clothes outdoors to dry is good for the environment, it is not so good, if you suffer from allergies. Laundry that is hanging outside acts as an efficient pollen catcher, ensuring that the next time you wear those clean clothes, you will be reaching for the antihistamines.

 

If you own pets, bathe them frequently when allergy season arrives. This is especially true for dog owners. Not only, are pets' hair and dander irritants on their own, animal fur is a magnet for pollen floating in the air, allowing these particles to hitch a ride on your pet and invade your home.

 

Dust mites are very difficult to avoid. As their name suggests, they love to make their home in mattresses and pillows, dining on shed skin flakes. It is disgusting. To fight them, encase your pillows and mattresses in specialized zippered covers and cases. You also want to do a weekly washing of all of your sheets in piping hot water to keep your bed clean.

 

Going outside and just playing is fun, right? Not so, if you suffer from allergies and it happens to be peak allergy season at the moment. You can still have fun, but choose less intense activities. If you are breathing faster, then more allergens are being introduced into your system. So, enjoy the outdoors, but opt for activities, such as, yoga or stretching.

 

Your allergies may well be triggered by dyes and colorants, so you should avoid products that contain them. This even means toilet paper with designs on it. Try using products made of just white paper to see if it helps.

 

Now, some effective natural remedies are available to allergy sufferers. Many of these natural solutions can combat several common allergies. You will be able to achieve reductions in itchy eyes, sneezing and breathing issues.

 

Many sufferers of allergens know they should make use of a humidifier in their bedrooms for moistening their airways while they are sleeping. However, you may not want to do this because the mist that comes out of the humidifier can settle on your carpet. As a result, mold accumulates, and it will get musty. To moisten airways, try using a saline nasal spray.

 

Exercising in the wrong place at the wrong time of day can trigger an unwanted allergic reaction. When you exercise, your respiration level increases. If you exercise inside rather than outdoors and try to do so during off-peak pollen times, you should minimize the influence of allergies to your routine.

 

There is no doubt that suffering from allergies can be a frustrating, irritating experience. However, it is not necessary to go without help. If you apply the guidance in this piece in your everyday life, it is, indeed, possible to keep allergies at bay and resume living the life that you truly desire.
